Tickets for the 2017-2018 season at the Bankhead Theater are now on sale! Located at the heart of downtown Livermore, the Bankhead will welcome a range of artists from all musical genres, as well as comedy, dance, theater, and other performing arts. The season officially begins on Saturday evening, September 9, 2017 at the Brilliance at the Bankhead Gala featuring Grammy Award-winning folk rock duo the Indigo Girls. Other notable highlights among the three dozen events scheduled through June 2018 are viral-video pop hit makers OK GO, the smooth harmony vocals of the Manhattan Transfer, and comedian Vicki Lawrence, known for her character “Mama” from The Carol Burnett Show.

Folk balladeer Tom Rush makes a welcome return, as does Marc Cohn touring with The Blind Boys of Alabama. Among artists making their first appearance at the Bankhead will be Los Lonely Boys, Lisa Loeb, and the Irish group Danù in a special St. Patrick’s Day concert.

According to Executive Director Scott Kenison, the programming team focused on balance. “We’re always happy to welcome big name artists and returning favorites, shows we know will meet a receptive audience, but it’s also important to bring artists such as African Guitar Summit and R. Carlos Nakai, William Eaton and Will Clipman to Livermore,” he said. “It’s particularly exciting to be able to bring to the Bankhead entertainers such as OK GO or Catapult that people may have only seen on television or online. These shows, as well as the return of Olate Dogs, DLux Puppets and others, appeal to all ages. With our student ticket price of just $17, we encourage families to come out and enjoy a show together,” he added.

This season is particularly rich with comedic talent. In addition to Vicki Lawrence and Mama,  Rita Rudner and Dave Coulier will keep audiences laughing with their solo stand-up routines. The San Francisco Comedy Competition, Second City and Capitol Steps all return to the Bankhead and the Reduced Shakespeare Co. will present “William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play,” a hilarious mash-up of characters, famous lines, and unexpected plot twists.

The Bankhead stage is not just for professionals. Next May, local celebrities will spend a week practicing with a professional ballroom dance partner before demonstrating their newfound skills in pursuit of the Mirrorball Trophy in “Dancing with the Tri-Valley Stars.” The evening includes a professional dance showcase by national champions, The Utah Ballroom Dance Company.

In addition to LVPAC Presents shows, the Bankhead Resident Companies, including Del Valle Fine Arts, Livermore-Amador Symphony, Livermore Valley Opera, Pacific Chamber Orchestra, Rae Dorough Speakers Series, Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre, and Valley Dance Theatre, offer nearly 50 performances and events of their own during the season.

The 2017-2018 Season at the Bankhead follows the previously announced Summer Series which begins in July with the already sold out evening with Paula Poundstone on July 7th. Six other shows including The Lettermen, Robert Cray, New Christy Minstrels, Derik Nelson and Family, JD Souther and Keiko Matsui run through August.

A fascinating interview with singer Storm Large

“Every piece of art is a step to the next. I almost never sit down with an idea and write consciously, unless I’m writing a song for someone else. I start with a lyric or rhythm that sounds cool to me. I don’t try to draw linear connections.”

Read the rest of Lou Fancher’s fascinating interview in the East Bay Times with singer, songwriter, actress, writer and sheer force of nature Storm Large before she and her band Le Bonheur take the stage at the Bankhead Theater on Friday evening, May 19.  More information and great tickets available here.

“Girl’s Night: The Musical” Celebrates Love, Life and Friendship
in a Night of Music and Laughter at the Bankhead Theater

LIVERMORE, CA – (June 22, 2015) – A musical comedy that has entertained audiences across the country, “Girl’s Night: The Musical” delivers a hilarious tell-it-like-it-is view of friendship, woven together with irresistible classic songs such as It’s Raining Men and Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Crafted by British writer Louise Roche, “Girl’s Night: The Musical” reached cult status in England before landing in the United States. The lively show follows the stories of five girlfriends out for a wild and crazy karaoke night as they celebrate the endurance of their friendship through the years. “Girl’s Night: The Musical” will run for four performances at the Bankhead Theater from Thursday, July 9, through Saturday, July 11, 2015.

Described as “Desperate Housewives meets Mamma Mia!” the five women of “Girl’s Night: The Musical” share a touching and comical look at the complexities of love and life: outrageous Carol, blunt Anita, unsatisfied Liza, boring and designated driver Kate, and sassy Sharon, the not-so-angelic angel who just couldn’t resist tagging along. This close-knit group of thirty and forty-something gals are the kind of friends everyone recognizes. Their stories and familiar songs, from the wistful At Seventeen and reflective The Love of My Man, to a show-stopping anthem of women’s resilience, I Will Survive, deliver a night of infectious energy and spontaneous laughter.

Playwright Louise Roche is co-director of Goodnights Entertainment, a professional theater company in Milton Keynes, England, and is a former television researcher, writer and producer. She has written five plays in addition to “Girl’s Night: A Musical” and her book “Glutton for Punishment” was published 1984. Roche says her inspiration for the play was a girl’s night out with her own friends when her children were all under the age of five. After staging it in a small theater that sold out for the entire run, Roche moved the show to a larger venue and, in 2007, “Girls Night: The Musical” crossed the ocean to open in Scottsdale, Arizona. It has been a box office success ever since, selling out venues from coast to coast.

Four performances of “Girl’s Night: The Musical” will be offered at the Bankhead Theater: Thursday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, July 10 at 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, July 11 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $69 or $52 for adults. Student tickets are available for $16 each.

“Girl’s Night: The Musical” follows last summer’s popular multi-night run of “Menopause the Musical” at the Bankhead Theater. Comedy shows are an integral part of the entertainment offered each year by LVPAC Presents, along with music of nearly all genres, dance and other performing arts. The 2015-2016 season includes a night of non-stop stand-up as part of the 40th Annual San Francisco Comedy Competition, “Broadway’s Next HIT Musical,” an impromptu and unique musical comedy created on stage directly from audience input, and Broadway’s longest running solo play, “Defending the Caveman.” In addition, the Bankhead will welcome the return of the inimitable Paula Poundstone, legendary Chicago-based The Second City, and The Capitol Steps, with a taste of political satire in an election year.

The Bankhead Theater, located at 2400 First Street in Downtown Livermore, is home to the LVPAC Presents series as well as performances by resident companies and touring performing arts groups. Rotating art exhibitions are also presented in the lobby and Founder’s Room throughout the year.

Bankhead Theater Welcomes Hot Club of Cowtown’s Western Swing

Bankhead Theater Welcomes Hot Club of Cowtown’s Western Swing During Annual Livermore Rodeo Weekend

LIVERMORE, CA – (April 30, 2015) – The annual tradition of a Western-themed music performance at the Bankhead Theater in conjunction with the Annual Livermore Rodeo will continue this year when LVPAC Presents welcomes Hot Club of Cowtown this June. Their unique and exhilarating take on Western swing is inspired by the hot jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, and the swing style of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. The trio called “an arsenal of technique and joy” by The New York Times will appear for one performance only on Friday evening June 12, 2015 at 8:00 pm. Tickets to see Hot Club of Cowtown are $29 or $52 for adults and just $16 for students.

Hot Club of Cowtown was crowned Western Swing Group of the Year at the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards and has earned an international following for their distinctive style. According to fiddler Elana James, she was living in New York and working as a magazine editor when she answered an advertisement guitarist Whit Smith ran in The Village Voice in 1994. They started playing clubs as a duo at first but after leaving New York, added Jake Erwin on bass. The trio has been playing and singing their own brand of hot jazz swing ever since. Hot Club of Cowtown’s out-of-the-mainstream music is difficult to classify as it does not fall neatly in the swing revival or the acoustic roots style. Playing standards from the early part of the 20th century, they use their own original arrangements so that, while it retains vintage elements, their music is completely new and modern as well.

Hot Club of Cowtown has released nearly a dozen albums including their most recent, the acclaimed “Rendezvous in Rhythm,” an exuberant collection of Gypsy songs and American Songbook standards. James described it as an exploration of their Left Bank, gypsy-jazz influences, interpreted with their own hot jazz style. The first American band to tour Azerbaijan, Hot Club of Cowtown has opened for artists from Bob Dylan to Willie Nelson, and performed at festivals worldwide.

Since the first LVPAC Presents season in 2007-2008, country music concerts in the Bankhead Theater have been offered in conjunction with the Annual Livermore Rodeo held each June in Robertson Park. Called “The World’s Fastest Rodeo,” this year’s 97th Rodeo will be preceded by the annual parade through downtown Livermore and opens officially on Saturday, June 13, 2015.

The performance by Hot Club of Cowtown brings the regular LVPAC Presents season to a close, but the Bankhead Theater will continue to be filled with music during the summer months with shows from hilarious musical theater and familiar folk tunes, to traditional jazz and world music. The regular 2015-2016 LVPAC Presents season, which begins in September, will include dozens of events featuring a variety of acclaimed artists in music, dance, theater and other performing arts. The diverse schedule includes exciting groups performing at the Bankhead Theater for the first time, as well as a number of audience favorites making a welcome return. Details on the LVPAC Presents 2015-2016 Season will be announced at the end of May with tickets available to the general public beginning in July.

Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center to Collaborate with Del Valle High School Culinary Arts Program for Concessions at the Bankhead Theater

LIVERMORE, CA – (April 27, 2015) – The Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center (LVPAC) announced that it will collaborate with the Del Valle High School Culinary Academy to provide specialty food items for performances and events at the Bankhead Theater. The agreement, which is effective immediately, will have the Del Valle Culinary Arts Program providing a range of items from baked goods, such as scones, cookies, cheesecakes and tarts, to cheese platters, fresh fruit cups, specialty nuts and caramel corn. The items will be delivered once per week and offered in the VIP room, as well as sold in the concessions area of the theater before shows and at intermission.

“The collaboration is a win-win project for both Del Valle and LVPAC and we’re excited to put it into motion,” said Scott Kenison, executive director at LVPAC. “It’s a wonderful example of how LVPAC and the Bankhead Theater can play a role in strengthening our community.” Culinary Arts students will not only be able to advance their culinary skills as they prepare the food items in the catering kitchen at Livermore High, they will have an invaluable opportunity to learn about the business of catering and concessions. Students will take part in planning for quantity cooking, and manage customer service, packaging, presentation, marketing and delivery of their finished product. In addition, the program is a fundraising opportunity that provides resources to support all the classes in the Culinary Arts program.

Dianne Russell, culinary arts instructor at Del Valle Continuation High School, is very enthusiastic about the many ways this specialty foods concessions program fits into the school’s overall goals. “The program is an excellent opportunity for students to put skills they have learned in class into action,” said Russell. Working with the Bankhead will also give students a chance to provide a service and give back to their community. As the relationship between LVPAC and Del Valle expands over time, Russell hopes it may be possible to have students placed into internships at LVPAC to learn more about the theater and its concessions program. “All these aspects ultimately support Del Valle High School’s goal: to help students graduate with the skills needed to contribute and thrive in a changing world and give them a positive experience with a sense of accomplishment and pride,” Russell added.

In addition to enhancing the culinary arts program for Del Valle students, LVPAC will benefit by being able to reduce its costs, while offering Bankhead patrons a wider selection of high-quality food products. “Everything will be made locally, not mass manufactured, so the products will not only be fresher, they can be more unique,” said Arthur Barinque, Concessions Manager at LVPAC. According to Barinque, the specialty food concessions program is already in effect with the first deliveries being made this week for performances this weekend. The full transition will be done over time with the goal of having Del Valle Culinary Arts foods available at all events at the Bankhead Theater when the 2015-2016 season begins in September. As the venue approaches its ninth season, other concessions-related changes are also underway. In addition to local wineries, now local breweries and distilleries, including Eight Bridges Brewing, Altamont Beer Works, Working Man Brewing and Sutherland Distilling Company, will be represented in the beverage selection at the Bankhead and drinks from the concession counter may be brought into the theater during events.

Del Valle Continuation High School, located near downtown Livermore, serves more than 150 students within the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District. The school offers an individualized and supportive small-learning environment focused on providing graduates with the skills needed to contribute and thrive in a changing world. In addition to core curriculum classes, electives are offered in art, digital photography, physical education, computer applications, and culinary arts. The Del Valle Culinary Academy was launched in the 2013-2014 school year.
